What a day...my eyes are literally burning as I struggle to edit my book, and it's only the FIRST draft. I've realized it's going to take much longer to go through this in order to make it tighter and presentable, etc. I think the actual writing of the book is the easiest part in all this...it's what comes after that is labor intensive and time consuming!
Several books I've read have given excellent advice and tips on how to make it the best it can be, and while it's been tremendously insightful & helpful, it's also lengthening the process. I guess in the end, if it helps me get published, it will all be worth it.
